Watch out for black ice


My first TJ 2002


After I found my phone. Level ground about 50mph


Some guys in a truck helped me get it back right side up


I've got a feeling the insurance company is gonna total it


And they did, so I started searching for a 2nd tj and I have no luck finding a good deal unless the vehicle is yellow


During the test drive.


First mod was to paint the headlight bezels. Now just thinking about what to do next.

Wow I think I would drink a beer looking at that on the trailer too. Are any of your other mods on the wrecked jeep work on the New Used Jeep

I think I would be snatching the bumpers and spare tire rack and Tires and Rims off. That's if Nothing was bent up too bad.

Good Luck with the New Jeep

Unfortunately it all had to go to the Junk yard. Some silly insurance company rule that a "complete" vehicle had to go. I could have bought it back from the insurance company but the difference was more than the upgraded parts value and since it was my DD I needed to hurry up and settle so I could get the next one. That and I was 700 miles away from home when it happened so I didn't have the time to mess with it.
